Gustav Nyquist RW DET 8 Days

Nyquist potted his 21st goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's wild 7-6 overtime win over the Stars.The goal snapped a six-game goalless drought for Nyquist, who has been playing on the team's third line. He's still on the top power-play unit, though, and has recorded 42 points in 57 games on the season. His goal-scoring has cooled down, but that doesn't mean he can't keep producing points. The 25-year-old is a great fantasy play on a Detroit team that has just three regulation losses in their past 15 games.

Nyquist handed out a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Avalanche.

Nyquist was quiet for most of the night with only one shot attempt, but did manage to keep his run of hot play going with a secondary helper on Justin Abdelkader's first-period goal. The Swedish forward has five goals and eight assists over his last 11 games.

Nyquist turned in his third consecutive two-point game Tuesday, scoring a power-play goal and adding an assist in a shootout win over Minnesota.

The 25-year-old winger also scored the deciding goal of the shootout, just for kicks. The ol' plus-minus is headed toward the land of the positive, and Nyquist has a remarkable 17 points in his last 13 gamse. He isn't likely to keep up that kind of scoring pace, but if he stays hot in the second half, a run at 70 points isn't out of the question.

Nyquist scored his 18th goal of the season and had an assist in Sunday's win over the Sabres.

That's back-to-back multi-point efforts from Nyquist, who has racked up 11 points (three goals) in his last nine games. The 25-year-old now has 18 goals and 34 points in 46 games on the season, to go with a minus-4 rating. With five multi-point outings in his last 12 games and a whopping 10 power-play goals on the season, Nyquist is a prime reason the surging Red Wings have just one loss in their last seven games. Keep him rolling, as the goose is just so loose right now.

Nyquist tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Nashville.

Nyquist is one of the major reasons Detroit is 5-2 in January, as he has two goals and five assists in the month. There has been no drop-off in Nyquist's second season, as he is on pace for 30-plus goals and nearly 60 points.

Nyquist recorded an assist in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Capitals.

Nyquist is off to a great start in January, with four assists in his first four games. He has 10 points in his last eight games, and while only one of those is a goal, he's still blazing hot at the moment.

Nyquist chipped in a pair of helpers in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Flames.

That's nine points in the last seven games and 28 points on the season for Nyquist, who has provided quite a secondary-scoring punch for the Wings this season. His minus-6 rating is a tad disappointing, but owners will likely overlook that given his offensive production. Only Henrik Zetterberg (36 points) and Pavel Datsyuk (30 points in 11 less games than Zetterberg and Nyquist) have more points than Gus this year in Motown.

Nyquist picked up two assists in Wednesday's win over the Sabres. The points give him six, including five assists, in his last four games.

Is this a sign of awakening from slumber? Perhaps -- he's far better than his current pace. We're willing to take a chance on him again. He has 15 goals and 10 assists in 38 games this season.

Nyquist dished out three assists -- all on the power play -- and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Sabres.

It hurts to see that minus in a game the Wings won running away, but three points sure can take the edge off. Though Nyquist has had no problem scoring goals this year -- 14 of them -- he'd managed only five assists in 34 contests entering Tuesday's action, and he'd gone without a point over the last three games. He's more talented than his 22 points and minus-7 rating for the year would seem to indicate, but this is shaping up to be a bit of a letdown campaign for the 25-year-old unless he can get hot.

Nyquist scored his team's lone goal in Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.

The winger's point total is now 17 through 29 games, but his 13 goals are good enough for 10th in the league at this point. Wednesday marked Nyquist's first point in his last four games, so hopefully the production will start coming more consistently now.
